Luke Hards

Head Chef Luke Hards grew up in Harcourt and knew from an early age he wanted to be become a chef. Luke started his career in Bendigo at Clogs where he completed his apprenticeship.

Wanting to expand his skills and knowledge Luke worked a well know and accredited restaurants such as The Royal George (1 Hat) in Kyneton, Stokehouse Restaurant (2 hat) in St Kilda and Public Inn (1 Hat) in Castlemaine.

Loving Regional Victorian produce and being closer to his family Luke made the move back to Bendigo where is career started.

After working at Woodhouse as a Sous Chef he saw an opportunity to use his skills and knowledge to step up as an Executive Chef.

Balgownie Estate Bendigo is pleased to have Luke onboard. His menu is fresh, eclectic and focuses on regional produce. To sum up Luke’s menu, think of refined street food from many cultures.
